There’s a small but growing boy in my house who needs a new hat. Last week, he put on the hat I made him a couple of summers ago and said, “my hat shrunk!” I think it’s more likely that his head grew, but either way, it no longer fits.
The air was so crisp this morning–it was a perfect fall day, but I felt bad sending him to school with a bare head. So this evening I’m taking a break from my growing ripple scarf (It tops two feet thanks to rehearsals for the cabaret I was involved with last week!) to make him a hat.
It’s crocheted in the round, single crochet in the back loop with the increases concentrated in four spots to create corners. Once I stop increasing, of course, the shape will transition back to round.
I’ll post a picture of Jay modeling the finished hat when it’s done.
